But yeah, I imagine no one here actually watched Happy Days growing up, lol.

Kind of crazy - the longevity of that show.

I only caught one season or something way back.

Was that corny back then? Nowadays niggas are sleeping in transparent boxes for 40 days with no food or wifing up hoes on reality tv. Sounds like they had it good
i didn't watch happy days, but it was seen as corny/gimmicky, signaling that the real essence of the show was done and they just needed to do stupid shit for ratings

I started jumping sharks when I got tired of jumping humans.

Oh wow thats sad, pretty sure I've seen both those battles, but I can't recall anything from them at all haha

Idk, I've thought "oh he's on his way to being great" for people like calicoe and tay roc when they were running through competition, but idk about brizz...hopefully I'll be proven wrong

Just like OP I also started to lose interest in 2014. Can't pin point any specific battle of that year. One thing that made me start to lose interest that year though, was when I played Dumbfoundead vs Kid Twist for two other people. They both looked at it like, wtf is this unfunny shit? Even I was listening to it thinking, wow this isn't as funny at all as I first thought it was. It was awkward as shit

But the moment I literally said to myself "battle rap is dead", was when I watched Daylyt vs Gjonaj. Even though I like Gjonaj, there was something that battle that just made me think, RIP Battle Rap. I think it was the amount of associative wordplay they used and the amount of recycled wordplay that Daylyt used. There's only so much "rounds", "t-win" bars you can hear before you think, this shit is dead.

Lost started to jump the shark once they introduced the time travel arc, Supernatural jumped the shark when the Winchesters literally beat the devil, etc.

So don't think it was quite what OP was going for, which is probably what threw people. In a battle rap context, we'd probably jump the shark at the point where DNA is booked to battle literally everyone on the card
Thats actually quite appropriate then, because battle rap really has lost its believability. Even when I hear guys on smack, I don't believe a single one of them anymore.

Though I can freak, fly, flow, fuck up a faggot. I don't understand their ways, I ain't down with gays

I'm like Hitler, sticking up Jews with German Lugers
-- Method Man

Duct taping her, gag her mouth so she can't scream. Start raping her
-- CNN

Just off the top of my head.
Exactly, I still, and always will, really like a lot of those artefacts, and as contrite as I am about that, I can't take the moral high-ground and act disdainful towards anyone for revelling in Battle-Rap, which isn't much less depraved and socially destructive.
